Café Adelaide information
This jazzy restaurant is a Brennan family tribute to their endearingly eccentric aunt Adelaide. We love the pop-art portraits of her that hang above the dining room. The motto here is the namesake’s own: ‘Eat, drink and carry on,’ a philosophy realized by haute Creole cuisine – shrimp and tasso corndogs, cast-iron Louisiana blue crab with gnocchi, and double pork chop with an absinthe bbq sauce.
It’s all as good as it sounds, and the attached Swizzle Stick is one of downtown’s better bars.
